Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Partners with AIP
Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Letters journal hosted on Scitation
Melville, NY, February 11, 2011—The American Institute of Physics (AIP) (aip.org) is pleased to announce that the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (CSTAM) has appointed AIP as the publisher of its newest journal—Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Letters (taml.aip.org). Published on behalf of CSTAM and hosted on AIP’s Scitation platform, TAML will be an essential source of groundbreaking research in mechanics for scientists and engineers worldwide.
"Science is clearly a global enterprise and collaboration with CSTAM on the publication of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics Letters will significantly enhance and expand communication and dissemination of this important research," said Robert Harington, Publisher, AIP Partnerships.
TAML will contain short, original articles in all areas of theoretical and applied mechanics, as well as in engineering-related fields, including:
Two of the most respected scientists in the field of mechanics serve as co-editors: Prof. Jiachun Li, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Prof. Yonggang Huang, Northwestern University. Commenting on the launch of TAML, Prof. Li stated, “Collaborating with AIP on a journal in the physical sciences lends instant credibility to our publication. In addition, hosting TAML on AIP’s Scitation online platform greatly expands the visibility and global reach of the journal, and helps researchers to leverage a wide range of valuable discoverability features.”
Institutional access to TAML is available on AIP’s Scitation platform via free trial subscription throughout 2011.
The American Institute of Physics is a federation of 10 physical science societies representing more than 135,000 scientists, engineers, and educators and is one of the world's largest publishers of scientific information in physics. Offering full-solution publishing services for scientific societies and for similar organizations in science and engineering, AIP pursues innovation in electronic publishing of scholarly journals. AIP publishes 13 journals; two magazines, including its flagship publication Physics Today; and the AIP Conference Proceedings series. Its online publishing platform Scitation hosts nearly two million articles from more than 185 scholarly journals and other publications of 28 learned society publishers. AIP also hosts UniPHY, the world's first literature-based professional and social networking site for physical scientists. UniPHY facilities collaboration between researchers worldwide and is pre-populated with profiles for more than 300,000 individual scientists.
The Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics is a non-governmental organization affiliated to the China Association of Science and Technology and is made up of 42 member institutions with a total of more than 20,000 members. CSTAM is the publisher of 17 periodicals, in addition to magazines, conference proceedings, and monographs; the association organizes more than 50 national and international conferences annually. Over the last 50 years, CSTAM has made significant contributions to the mechanics community, providing scientists with forums for discussion of major issues related to mechanics, promoting non-official academic cooperation, and publishing learned journals.
